The Georgian Quarter is arguably one of the most beautiful parts of the city and with good reason.

The cobbled streets, Georgian townhouses, traditional pubs, beautiful restaurants and cultural venues make it a must visit area when you’re in Liverpool. 

It’s also one of the most filmed areas of the city for tv shows and films so you never know who you might bump into around here. Check out all the things you can do below and don’t forget to take your camera!


Right in the heart of the Georgian Quarter you’ll find the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. As Britain's biggest Cathedral and the 5th largest in Europe, you can’t really miss it! Head inside to see the stunning interior, journey up to the top of the tower for incredible views and explore the grounds on a sunny day. You’ll be blown away.  


Technically not inside the Georgian Quarter but close enough to run over for a quick visit is the Metropolitan Cathedral. At the opposite end of Hope Street to the Anglican Cathedral, this cathedral boasts a modern design, beautiful stained glass and the magnificent Lutyens Crypt. 


One of the Georgian Quarter’s most loved places to stop for something to eat is The Quarter. Hidden down a cobbled side street, it's the perfect place to sit outside with a glass of wine watching the world go by or to head inside for amazing breakfasts and freshly made lunches. 


Famous for its floral displays over the front door, this Grade II listed building is home to one of the most popular restaurants in the area. 60 Hope Street only serve dishes made from the freshest seasonal ingredients with an ever changing menu. It makes for a great selfie spot too. 


There are plenty of other bars and restaurants to check out in the area too. For an American style breakfast head to Moose Coffee, Buyers Club for a Sunday roast, the Pen Factory for stunning small plates or The Florist for drinks in floral heaven. 

If you’re a Beatles fan there is also Ye Cracke hidden down Rice Street which used to be one of John Lennon’s favourite pubs to relax with a pint in.


Hope Street is the famous street that connects both of Liverpool’s Cathedrals and there is so much to see on your stroll down it. Take in the Cathedrals, stop and have a look at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, get your selfie outside 60 Hope Street and have a look at the Hope Street suitcases statue. 


If you’re into the scarier things in life then The Hope Street Shivers Shiverpool Ghost Walk is for you. The spooky hosts will guide you round the Cathedral Quarter of Hope Street beginning at Liverpool’s most historic alehouse, the Philharmonic Dining Rooms - it’s great fun for all the family. 


Another venue just on the edge of the Georgian Quarter is the Everyman Theatre. The beautiful theatre is home to some of the regions best productions welcoming touring shows and home grown talent. It’s definitely worth seeing what is on here before you visit. 


Liverpool Philharmonic Hall is an art deco style Grade II listed building right in the heart of the Georgian Quarter and is home to the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra which is known around the world. Apart from over 60 orchestral concerts a year the venue hosts everything from rock gigs, film showings and dance productions so there is something for everyone in this beautiful building. 


After an afternoon exploring the Georgian Quarter a refreshing drink in the Philharmonic Dining Rooms, or ‘The Phil’ as it’s known by the locals, is a must. This stunning Grade II listed building is one of Liverpool’s most famous pubs which is why people flock here for a pint and to see the iconic men’s toilets. Make sure you pop your head in the next time you’re there. 

A couple of famous faces are also known to stop off for a drink every now and then too with Paul McCartney stopping by in 2018 for a surprise gig.
